Taylor GAce-FLTD, Figured Sapele & European Spruce - Pre-Owned


Sold Make an enquiry


This special 2012 fall limited edition Taylor Grand Auditorium features some tonewoods you might not be used to seeing on their instruments - European spruce and some gorgeously quilted sapele. Taylor said it best:

"These flatsawn sets have more flex, which translates into greater power and warmth on the low end. A premium European spruce top is the perfect complement, blending elements of Adirondack spruce’s robust output (thanks in part to Adirondack spruce bracing on four of the steel-string models, including this one) with a hint of cedar’s warmth. Quilted sapele and ivoroid appointments, including a diamond “Solitaire” inlay scheme, add elegant sophistication to the guitar."

The condition of this pre-owned guitar is truly excellent. The thin finish work shows almost no sign of wear, and it comes outfitted with Taylor's Expression System 2 pickup and its original hard case.
